Harbour Island is an island in the Bahamas located off the northeast coast of Eleuthera Island, about 70 miles from Nassau. Unlike Nassau, Harbour Island remains under English governance. It contains a number of wealthy estates, including that of Richard Guthrie until he was convicted of black marketeering and fled. Harbour Island has since become the encampment of a large English garrison of some two hundred men under Captain Hume.
